    Also storage ideas for fat quarters.

    I was at a quilt shop the other day and they had them folded as stars. I just did a search and found out how they folded them. Enjoy!

    we used one Saturday as a blindfold for GS's birthday party. Pin the smoke on the smoke stack of the Thomas train.
